30th November 2015

Share Radio invited Fleximize's Co-founder and Managing Partner, Max Chmyhsuk, to discuss recent Fleximize analysis, which reveals that banks continue to turn down millions in SME credit applications, despite a slight improvement in lending since the recession.

The firm, which pioneered revenue-based finance for the UK's small businesses, found that in the first half of 2015 banks rejected up to £442.3 million in credit applications from SMEs in London.

Max explains the reasons for the banks' behaviour, and how this has fuelled the alternative funding sector - the future future for SME finance. He also explains where SMEs can go to find a broad range of sources of business funding.
